Anuvahood is a British urban comedy Directed by Adam Deacon. Anuvahood is Adam Deacons break out into directing. The first time I heard of Adam is in the 2006 movie kidlthood and ever since them he has been acting in various movies about British teens growing up in London.
When I first heard Adam Deacon was directing a movie I had no doubt in my mind it wasn't going to be something good to watch. From his previous acting roles he seems to me to be a quite good actor so I thought this should rubb off in the movie. Daniel Toland helped direct the movie as Adam also starred in the movie too. I really enjoy watching Adam deacon so I was excited when this came out.
The main characters in the movie are:
Adam Deacon - As Kenneth or K main character who is sort of a watseman. I think his a comedian just as usual.
Femi Oyeniran - As Bookie Who is K's close friend
Ollie Barbieri - As Enrique who's is also K's close friend
Richie Campbell - As Tyrone who is the neibourhood bully.
The movie doesn't really have an interesting storyline all it really is about is a bunch of teenagers on the lasting about all day causing trouble or getting into trouble. I think this movie reminds me alot of how the movie Friday is but instead set in London. The character Tyrone is very much like Deebo in Friday. They are both neibourhood bully's and go around robbing people. The plot of the group of boys getting in trouble with the neibourhood bully and trying to fix it is also similar to Friday. I think however this was probably his intention because Friday is a popular movie with young community and I think that to create a similar British version is a good idea and if this was his intention I think it worked.
It's not really the storyline that interested me it more about the comedy and jokes in the movie. The movie is full of comedy but it's mostly aimed at young people because it has alot of slang that older viewers may not understand unless they have kids that talk like that or are around young people. One of the funniest part of the movie is when K goes to a shop demanding for fruit tellers. He gets all angry and hot headed with the shop owner and when the owner asks why he wants them so bad he replays saying 'it's a bad man sweet, you get me' I was in stitches at that part because he looked so serious about it.
The movie doesn't have many special effects but I think the quality of it is really good. Comparing it to Kidulthood and Adulthood which are the same sort of thing Anuvahood comes out on top I think that quality of the picture and stuff it doesn't the council estate they live in looks like a presentable place to live in.
The movie grossed over £2 million pounds I think that's a really good amount to gross for your first attempt at directing. Especially when its not a global release. The movie was released in 2011. The movie features songs from Adam Deacon.
The movie is available on Amazon from 4.49. I think that's a reasonable price for the DVD and I would only really recommend it for the younger generation.
